KSDK reported today that Florissant Police are looking for Paul Tripp in connection to the death of Valerie Butler, a Maryland Heights woman who went missing in early February. She was in Bridgeton on March 3.
The news station said Tripp is 27, Caucasian, weighs 175 pounds and is 5 foot 10 inches tall.
KSDK reported Butler's family believes she may have overdosed. A quick search on Missouri's CaseNet system shows a Paul A. Tripp from Florissant charged with several drug-related crimes.
The latest of these crimes was in 2010, when he pleaded guilty to producing or possessing with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
